Why This Blog?
This blog was created for the investment community. George Soros once said, “Investors operate with limited funds and limited intelligence, they don’t need to know everything. As long as they understand better than others, they have an edge.”
What I hope to achieve is to allow readers to have that edge which George Soros mentioned. There are tons of information out there in the market everyday. The more we understand the macro-environment in which the stock market is operating in, the more we have an advantage over the other market participants. The more data and understanding we have, the more informed our investment decisions will be.
An experienced professional to guide you in your investment journey through treacherous market conditions.
Regular market updates will be given to clients. This will be done through traditionally; a phone call or clients can simply visit my blog to read on the latest developments in the market at their convenience, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

I was a client of Alan during his tenure as a relationship manager at Standard Chartered Bank. Alan has great passion for the market and is very willing to share the latest market development and his positioning strategy through different market conditions. I am impressed with his knowledge and generosity. He was more than a relationship manager, putting ethics first before his pockets. Even with his departure, we continue to stay in touch and catch up on investing and life. A very amiable person and good at what he does!Reynold Tan, Partner/ Portfolio Manager at Arkenomics Capital

I had the pleasure of working along side Alan, who is truly a financial market guru applying both fundamental and technical analysis. The research that he published on his blog provided great insights to the team on financial markets over the past 2 years.

Through our professional Journey, there were many instances that Alan correctly pointed out the bottoms and peaks, a true inspiration of financial literacy. He is a selfless man; always ready to extend help and guidance when needed. He is also someone who knows when to work hard and play hard, Alan is truly an asset to any community. Good man!Isaac Tan, Senior Investment Advisor at iFAST Global Market

His work ethics, market knowledge and sound advice are the qualities that I look for in a RM and has far surpassed them all. He puts his clients’ interests first and goes the extra mile to help his clients. He makes extra effort to understand his clients’ needs and tailor an investment solution to help his clients meet their investments goals.
